15 city public libraries provided the website Quartz the recent circulation rankings and it looks like Go Set A Watchman by Harper Lee and The Girl On The Train  are the most popular books to be checked out:

The time period for the checkout lists varied by library, but all were each library’s most recent figures. Some libraries provided Quartz with lists for July, others for August, and some provided lists that spanned multiple recent months. Because Go Set a Watchman was released on July 15, its popularity could be underrepresented by some libraries’ lists.

Watchman was popular enough to be a top 10 most popular book at nine of the libraries. The Girl on the Train was checked out enough to make 11 top 10 lists.”

I was born and raised in New York. I still live in New York but kind of sick of the city and one day I wish to move to the UK.I have a Masters degree in Library Science and I currently work in a special collections library. I loved books ever since I was a little girl. Through the hard times in my life, my love for books has always gotten me through. Just entering another world different from my own intrigues me. As long as I am entering in another universe, I like to create my own as well. I love to write and hopefully I will be able to complete a novel.
